Jill & Derick Dullard: Counting On (Donations)

Recommended Posts

I used to hear older people in Baptist churches refer to a concert or program at church as a cantata, but I don't think I've heard in twenty years.

I went to church a lot for the first 21-ish years of my life and never attended one that had a cantata for, well, anything. I am more familiar with cantatas from the realm of music. I assume it depends on the denomination and perhaps the formality of the individual churches on whether or not they have one? 

Wikipedia seems to think that a Christmas cantata is just like any other cantata, except Christmas themed, so hopefully the church itself knows what they did and whether or not it has multiple movements.  🤔

Can't use fresh lemon or garlic?  Jill shops like my mom did 60 years ago.

I use fresh garlic, and have no use for the pre-chopped sort in jars.  Given the price of lemons, though, and the fact that sometimes you don't even know if a lemon is going to be juicy enough, I find bottled lemon juice so much more economical (I tend to use it quite a lot), and it's a natural product, so bottled lemon juice is a staple in my kitchen. I use fresh lemons when the zest is also an important part of the recipe, but otherwise the bottled is just as good.

I hope Jill tipped!

If she did, it was with a Bible tract meant to save the soul of her manicurist. Money pales beside a gift like that!

I wonder if Jill and Derrick's thoughts on tipping have changed since he has been driving for grubhub where tips are a lot of the income for drivers.

I can see it going either way - they might think to tip others or they might think only they, as persecuted christians screwed out of money by TLC and JB deserve tips or some such thing like that

I admit I don't know the price of lemons so maybe I should excuse that one.  I live in southern California so lemons are not usually store bought.  The neighbors and I share a tree and have so many we're feeding the birds and squirrels with the excess.

Typically, they are about two for a dollar here. You can get them cheaper if you get a bigger bag, but I always find, in that case, that they are a much poorer quality than the ones I can choose off the shelf, and many start rotting within days.

I probably shop somewhat like Jill. I hate the smell of chopping garlic and lemons are very expensive here, so I use bottled for both. I also use cream of <something> soups to make  comfort-food casseroles like dear old mom use to make. Although, I don't make them very often and my meals are seldom beige

I buy the jarred minced garlic as well. I love fresh, but I feel like I can never get the smell off my hands, no matter how hard I scrub.

Somehow, I don't mind the garlic on my hands. I can understand how it could be annoying, but it just doesn't annoy me enough to not chop it fresh. It comes off in time, and in the meantime, I guess I just enjoy the smell of garlic, whether in food or on my hands 😁 

It does come off pretty easily with lemon juice, though.

I don’t think Derek tells her about tips  nothing to base this feeling on   Just a feeling I get

Another entry from Sam, a.k.a. @mynextmistake!!  Can I get a "Yayyyy!??"

"Here's my nails. They might have some McMuffin underneath. My mother-in-law- will tip well if it all come out."

I mean seriously, what is the technician supposed to do here?  Ask her to wash the grease off of her hands before doing her mani?  What if a chunk of McMuffin falls off and lands on her still-wet pedi?  Who's going to have to fix that nonsense?  And while I have only had a few mani/pedis in my life, I cannot imagine that the aroma of nail polish and acetone combines well with a mouthful of egg and cheese.

I suppose it's possible that this breakfast out/salon combo was manipulated by Dreck, making Jill bring her food to the salon to shorten the duration of their "date."  If so, well played, but still possibly the stupidest "date" I have ever heard of.  At least eat your crap in your minivan like you usually do, you weirdos.

I kind of hope he’s gotten numerous million dollar tracts as tips.  These people like empathy, so that’s the only way they will learn how inappropriate that is.

Jill's house is a new build, yet it has textured wall paint. Is that a regional thing? In my next of the woods you usually only see textured wall paint in old homes where folks are using a cheaper way to hide a wall that may have aged with cracks, dents, many picture holes, wallpaper, etc.

Do you mean the texture on the wall in front of Isreal? If so, I don't think that's textured wall paint, I think that's "orange peel" spray on the drywall itself. It's pretty common in new builds around here, it's much easier to spray that on the walls than to try and do a smooth coat over the drywall. You can find that stuff in a can at Home Depot.

Her kitchen dining area is looking like Jana might have paid a visit....  I'm still not a fan of the table up against the wall.

I'm guessing the table is place like that so Jill & Derrick can sit next to each other. 🤢

my grandkids are verbal things like this and have said they cannot sit on their butts in a big chair, at a big table and write. they can't hold a pencil or crayon at the right angle to write and can't see what they are writing/drawing. 

they do however have to have their butts on the chair when eating a meal

Textured walls seem to be more common in states west of the Mississippi.  I have lived in Texas, Colorado, and Nevada, have family in Oregon, Arizona, and California, and all have some type of textured drywall.  But when we lived in Pennsylvania our house had smooth drywall, as does my brother’s place in Illinois.

Jill and Derick’s place is similar in style to the houses in Texas, so I’m not surprised they have textured walls.

The Dullards don't have a dining room, just that large kitchen space. However, it's hard to tell if there's enough room between the table and the half wall that juts out to pull the table off the wall. They don't have an island, so it's all open space.

My table is up against the wall and does not look stupid.  In my home, it’s the best location for it.  To each their own.  

I'm with you.  Growing up our  kitchen table was against two walls in a corner & pulled out when necessary depending on how many of us were eating together.  Same thing with the kitchen in our previous house. The table was against the wall due to space & pulled out as necessary.  It looked fine. 

I think the Dillard's eating area is different than the norm for a newer house.  Most houses that don't have a separate formal dining room have a smaller dining area off of the kitchen or an island/counter than can be used as an eating area.  Instead they have a large eat in kitchen which was probably cheaper for the builder.

Having the table shoved up to the wall is just plain stupid and annoys my decorating senses. 

I had to do that in my first house. The kitchen was the size of a postage stamp and there was no room.

Stainless steel is supposed to get that smell off.  Rub it on your hands.

Oooooh.....is she listening to this because she's cutting out her toxic parents? (Please say yes!)

Maybe toxic spouses, too! I'm afraid she'd go nuts and walk away from her (perceived) toxic kids - she's not an Izzy fan.

Quote

a friend of Gary's suggested he read the book of Luke and count how many times Jesus walked away. To Gary's amazement, Jesus walked away from people 41 times in the gospels.

Of course, he also walked up to whores and tax collectors and befriended them at every opportunity. Can't see Jilly doing that - yet.
